• CHAPTER II •
Flight of the Phoenix
♦ Miiko wants you to come to the Crystal Room, go!
Barely arrived in the Crystal Room,
you are almost assaulted by Huang Hua.
She leaves the room quickly and you learn that you are now the lady in waiting,
the word "slave" probably does not exist in Eldarya… of the emissary.
So you leave the Crystal Room with several reminders on the rules of conduct...
♦ Leave the Crystal Room and wait for Huang Hua to have finished napping.
While waiting for Feng Zifu to pick you up, busy yourself.
You can either train or learn more about Eldarya’s history.
♦ Go to the library to find out more about the portals.
Go to the library to learn more about the portals.
Ykhar opens the archives and even offers a book on the ingredients needed to open the portals.
Absorbed in this book, you forget about the environment.
Yet you snap out of it, when you are disturbed by this dear
Feng Zifu who you follow to the Crystal Room.
♦ Go to the Crystal Room to see Huang Hua.
Once in the Crystal Room, you see Huang Hua in full conversation with Miiko. They seem to be very close...
You are going to have to show the H.Q. to the emissary and describe your world to her.
Unfortunately, you are going to have to deal with that annoying Zif...
Huang Hua wants to talk to you, especially about your human life.
You have to take this hippy to a "beautiful and fresh" place...
♦ Bring Huang Hua to a place that's "beautiful and fresh", in the heart of H.Q. Don't go to the exterior plains!
On the way, you cross paths with Cryllis, who immediately makes Zif’ suspicion, who’s ready to take out his blade...
You can also cross paths with Ykhar, completely overwhelmed by the "pompous procedures".
Huang Hua takes a moment to read a story to the children.
You listen intently to know more about this exciting tale.
You then talk to her in the H.Q. gardens.
Finally, this dear Zif 'ends the discussion when his belly grumbles.
You then decide to take them to go eat.
♦ Bring Feng Zifu and Huang Hua to go eat.
Go to the Dining hall.
On the way, you can cross paths with Nevra, Ezarel, Valkyon, Alajea or Kero.
You then arrive in a totally transformed Dining hall.
Karuto has outdone himself!
Feng Zifu and Huang Hua ate well.
They are full and tired.
So, they leave the Dining hall and let you clean up the table!
♦ It's been a while since you've had a real conversation with the boys, find them!
You go in search of the boys.
You can cross paths with Purriry and buy the complete jewelry set of the Phoenix.
When you come across the boys, you ask them to get a drink in the dining hall with you.
Unfortunately, Karuto is unbearable and you decide to take the drinks and go elsewhere in the comfort of open spaces.
There you learn that Ezarel has "accidentally"
fired an arrow into Valkyon's buttocks, and that he became Leader of the Guard later...
But your mission isn’t over yet and the next day may be very busy.
♦ Go back to your room to rest.
You go back to your room and one of the boys decides to take you back.
Soon, Karenn hears you screaming at night,
so Nevra suggests that you come stay in his room if you’re awaken by a nightmare....
♦ Wait for Huang Hua in front of her room.
Leave your room and head towards Huang Hua’s room.
She takes you to the Dining hall where Karuto prepares lunch.
You then suggest to show Huang Hua the surroundings of H.Q.,
of course always asking permission from dear Zif '...
♦ Show them around H.Q.
You then go around, the edge of the forest, the beach… Nothing special.
♦ Go to the Crystal Room to assist in a rather… complicated meeting.
Miiko organized a meeting with Huang Hua to determine the fate of the flute, the Fenghuangs’ treasure.
The emissary invites you and trusts your judgment as a foreigner to be objective in such arguments.
You then go to the Crystal Room.
The meeting is very heated, but the treaties are signed anyway and a decision is made as to the fate of the Fenghuangs’ treasure:
the flute will go to the royal family of the Northern Jade Region.
Miiko will send men to help rebuild the fenghuang temple.
♦ Say farewell to Huang Hua.
Huang Hua is about to leave.
You must find her and bid her farewell.
Everyone is gathered in the Hall of the Doors.
You and Huang Hua step away from the crowd of delirious peasants to try to hastily reach the exterior.
She tells you that she is only an apprentice Phoenix and that she still has to pass tests and wait for the death of the current Phoenix.
You also learn that some Fenghuangs have powers: Zif ' has the power of regeneration;
Huang Hua, she can determine if someone loves you very much... talk about a power!
♦ Bring Huang Hua all the way to the Grand Gate.
You arrive at the Grand Gate and the departure time draws near.
Huang Hua bids farewell to everyone and you see her power in action:
she tells you that a soul lights up in your presence.
Of course, she does not tell you who, that girl!
She leaves, leaving you to your dreams and your illusions...
